Believe me Tak, you would not have enough money to keep him in working order. Nevermind all the fuel it's spending xD

And if you are already preparing to spend that much money then but this instead:

Nah, I have no joy with modern fighters. If I am going to take a loan of 200K, I might as well spend it on a Yak and a T-34, which cost 40K & 50K respectively. Then use the rest to mock them up.

The Yak for example, could be modified to look like a BF-109.

That MiG has an actual minimum bid price of 3 million USD anyway.

For those who want to try and take screencaps, you might be interested to know AiCap has put a 1.06GB version on the "market" grabbed from Bandai Channel. It is still 720p but with the lower compression the quality should be better.

vs Anzio

Finally got to watch the Anzio OAV.

Same ole, same ole.

Wait! Come back! I'm not done yet!

It's the same old highly entertaining romp, using the same old mix of cute girls doing cute things in amusing ways while in traditionally not not cute tanks. It's the same old stuff that was in the TV broadcast, and HOT DAMN, I want more of this same ole same ole stuff.

Enough of that. I want to talk about the animation, which i'm wont to do. I am impressed with the animation in this OAV. I could care less how many sparkles you put in a scene, or how many effect layers you can stack on top of an image, or how flashy you do your 3D CG.

What impresses me with this animation is the motivation. Is it flashy? Will it cause you to jump up and scream "Wow that's a lot of animation detail!" Nope, and nope. All the details (and the incredibly competent 3D CG) are very understated, they were put in and exist for one reason. To give the characters life, give them subtle hints of their personality beyond their base character deign and what they say.

They friggin' animated the thing, picking and choosing the correct scenes to give extra attention, and it worked beautifully for me. Characters blink*, background characters move, do things and sometimes look at the person speaking, the girls talk with their hands, and not just static mouth movements... I could go on and on. Basically, Actas -animates- the series, give it life and motion, instead of looking for every conceivable way to avoid drawing frames. It's not flawless, but they pay attention to details, and aren't afraid to be generous with those keyframes.

Actas, for actually being an animation studio that animates, I stand and salute you!

*Side note: Miho doesn't blink as much as everyone else. Usually I'd chalk that up to laziness, but here it seems to be done on purpose.

You know what else I loved (besides all of it)?
Spoiler for for additional reason:

Spoiler for Poor Saori:

You are very observant. I have noticed some of that when I tried taking screencaps. They didn't always animate every frame, but instead they stagger some of the changes - the problem is that I have to take a lot more frames down to get everything

Hana still has the most food. Also by the bread baskets and the size and shape of her plate, they were prepared for her this time.

I've watched the Anzio episode as well, and it's funny and generally good (the manga version was really bad, IMO).
Despite using some Italian people to check on terms, I can say that a lot of what Anzio says during battle isn't really what I'd call the correct terms...

What did they say and what were they supposed to say? I think in battle they said:

Avanti!
Si!
Spara!

Was there even anything else they said?

Looks like they're releasing an entire book for the Girls Und Panzer x World of Tanks collaboration.

Does bring a different take on the term "crossing the finish line".

Nice detail with the Pzkw T-34 747(r) "liberated" by Kuromorimine and with german style mods.

Is this one circle that's working on these? Because they're coming out much faster now.

A new doujin is apparently in the works by that particular circle in addition to several partnerships. We shall see.
